Aixois Restaurant Review

: Megan and Emmanuel Langlade's neighborhood bistro has grown, with more seating indoors and out, and a 50-seat private dining room. They've kept the same traditional dishes --- three variations of mussels, crêpes, quiche and steak frites --- but added ruby trout meunière, seafood gratinée and cassoulet every weekend. To complement the meal, a full bar is available, too. On Monday nights, there are budget-friendly, three-course fixed meals. For breakfast, look for fresh Belgian waffles. During lunch, Aixois is a popular place for young mothers and their brood --- especially when the weather is fair. A more laid-back version of the restaurant, called Brasserie, can be found at 1006 Walnut.
